A raft of deals was also signed with Canal+ for several of its international channels. In Myanmar, a deal for Mirette Investigates, Leo the Wildlife Ranger and Purple Turtle was signed, and in Ethiopia, an agreement was made for Zou, Mini Ninjas and Zorro: The Chronicles for the THEMA channel.

Additionally, Cyber Group Studios secured an SVOD service deal with Bell Media for English- and French-speaking VOD rights for The Pirates Next Door, Mini Ninjas, Sadie Sparks and Zorro: The Chronicles.
